Boro v Cardiff (A) 0-1

Recommended Posts

Ramsdens Pawn Stars v The Bluebirds.

 

Sat 17th Feb 3.00 kick off. 

 

 

 

Well here we are again and this time its Cardiff away, currently 10 points ahead of us in the table coming off the back of a 2-0 win over Bolton.

 

I'm sure a lot of us have some fond memories of Cardiff and would certainly like to keep up the trend - will the pawn stars glitter and shine in the welsh sunshine or leave the fans high and dry?

Will Pullis change anything? 

Will we see any of the new signings make an appearance? 

 

Our tormentor Neil Warnock once again has a chance to put one over us, a constant thorn in our side he always finds ways to beat us (I wanted him instead of Monk but people "don't like him" which is a shame because everyone we seem to employ everyone starts to hate at some point, so just get someone who we hate but can do the job)........alas that ship has sailed and now the Pullis revolution is under way - does he have the nous to get one over Warnock?

 

 

Adamah Trore didn't just paper over the cracks he completely blind sided everyone as to how blunt we were in attack  by the joy of seeing the lad finally looking like what we all hoped he would.

 

Cardiff equally had a Traore on the score sheet  and will be hoping to repeat their last win.

 

Heres a few interesting facts about Cardiff;-

 

They started out as a cricket team, they wanted to stay fit and keep the team together over the winter months so formed a football team.

 

Bill Shankly's first defeat as Liverpool boss was against Cardiff.

 

They haven't always played in blue - up till 2012 they played in a lovely brown and orange kit.

 

Legendary Cardiff player Robin Friday pooped in Mark Lawrensons kit bag after being sent off for kicking him in the face.

 

Possible team ;-

 

Randolph

 

Shotton Ayala  Gibson Freind

 

Traore Besic Howson Downing

 

Donkey    Donkey

 

 

Is there any point in saying we really need something from this game?

UTB!!

Will very likely be Traore vs. Traore for the game too. Interesting battle. Which one will fail to defend against the other?

 

I don't see this ending well for us. I think Cardiff will take the points in a 2-0 defeat.

 

I don't think we'll see any significant changes for the game, though Bamford certainly gave the impression coming off against Reading that that was his last chance to prove his starting credentials. Who comes in though? I'd be surprised to see Harrison with him having had no minutes on the pitch for a while but maybe we'll finally see his introduction. Maybe even Traore left, Harrison right.

Bamford looked upset when he was subbed last weekend.

Indeed that's what I mean. All the lads ran over to him to show a bit of support. He looked distraught.

Wales is alright really. Very scenic but if you like city life then Wales ain't for you.

I think he is trying but doesn't have the right skills for the position he's playing in. He would be better upfront with another intelligent forward like Vossen. They worked well together. But I think his confidence is well an truly shot

Think we might see Howson and Besic in the middle, Howson was very good last game. Would like to see Harrison make a sub appearance as well this week.

I'd like us to try playing him off Gestede. Or Britt playing off Gestede, though God knows where Britt's head is right now after his Six Nations effort at the weekend. Hopefully we see the best out of both of them soon.

Was lovely to see Britt put a pic on Instagram today to receive nothing but abuse from Boro fans. What a sad, sorry state of affairs.

Got a funny feeling we’ll win this one. They played midweek, we’re starting to look a bit organised defensively and there’ll be quite a few out to prove a point in attack. I think us 2-1, goal from a set piece followed by gestede poking one in.

    • fans are often super critical of their own teams players; comes with the territory. Doesn't mean they're right. I know he's maybe had a bit of an inconsistent season, but he's still joint 10th in the scoring charts atm. I don't see how Leeds would ever let him go for less than they paid for him.
    • Man Britt to Leeds I mean they're gambling with that Prem money in my opinion they're assuming they'll go up with Britt so in 6 months his fee and wages + FFP stuff will not matter as much but he's going to cost them there's no chance we sell cheap or Britt doesn't get a tidy promotion wage home clause from 2nd in the league Leeds. I'd say 9-10 million I'd be happy with and to be honest take a punt on Shankhill he'd suit our pressing system to a tee. I've got no real sentiment to Britt or Randolph as harsh as it seems for the financial health of the club we do have to cash out on Britt between now and August we have too much tied up in him to let his contract run any further.
    • I'd sooner have Bamford than Britt, even though I've really gone off him with his constant diving, cheating and all round lack of sportsmanship. I can't see him ever coming back here though. Even just on this season, I'm sure he'd sooner be floundering and playing poorly at a club 2nd in the table than move back to a club in the bottom half of the table that sold him and he had a bit of a tiff with. It's all moot anyway, they won't sell their only striker to bring in another striker.
    • Try asking Leeds fans. Iv'e seen plenty of times that they are not happy with him and he's not close to being worth 10 mil. And I agree. I don't think he is a 10 million pound striker. But neither is Britt. Some Championship clubs pay way over. I guess players are worth whatever a club is willing to pay, but I wouldn't pay above 6 mil. for Bamford.
    • He was worth 10m when we sold him and I don't think he's hurt his value all that much at Leeds.
